I left Villars at just after 4am to do the Grand Muveran first. Water at fountain at Pont du Nant, then next self-supply available at the Cabane Rambert. I had a small support team summit the Dents du Morcles with me from Jorasses, then I was on my own on the long descent to the Rhine Valley. A resupply from my wife before the next big climb, then use of the Cabane Salanfe before the Dents du Midi summit and the Cabane susanfe afterwards for supplies. I continued to run solo into Monthey, where I was then joined by a friend to help me on the climb home to Villars. I was hoping for sub 2 hours, and think this is certainly possible, especially with more support. Take care on the summits, especially the Grand Muveran, ideally this should not be done solo as it is a technical route.


*hoping for sub 20 hours, not 2 hours!!!
